More On Cloud Computing ... Cloud Service Advantages

Cloud computing describes a new supplement, consumption, and delivery model for IT services based on Internet protocols, and it typically involves provisioning of dynamically scalable and often virtualised resources. It is a byproduct and consequence of the ease-of-access to remote computing sites provided by the Internet. This may take the form of web-based tools or applications that users can access and use through a web browser as if the programs were installed locally on their own computers.

Cloud computing providers deliver applications via the internet, which are accessed from web browsers and desktop and mobile apps, while the business software and data are stored on servers at a remote location. In some cases, legacy applications (line of business applications that until now have been prevalent in thin client Windows computing) are delivered via a screen-sharing technology, while the computing resources are consolidated at a remote data center location; in other cases, entire business applications have been coded using web-based technologies such as AJAX.

The advantages of Cloud Service include .....

* Reduced Cost: Cloud technology is paid incrementally, saving organizations money.
Increased Storage: Organizations can store more data than on private computer systems.

* Highly Automated: No longer do IT personnel need to worry about keeping software up to date.

* Flexibility: Cloud computing offers much more flexibility than past computing methods.

* More Mobility: Employees can access information wherever they are, rather than having to remain at their desks.

* Allows IT to Shift Focus: Organizations no longer have to worry about constant server updates and other computing issues; they are free to concentrate on innovation.
